WGGB president Sandi Toksvig says: "What a fitting day to celebrate the cream of British writers - who have kept us entertained on page, stage, screen and across the airwaves, through such dark times.

"Our creative industries play such an important role, as do all those who work within them and we hope our awards ceremony on Valentine's Day will send this message - you matter, we care, and thank you for your words, which have lifted us all up over these past two years."
